Pork Wings

Last year at a ECU-NC State game we tailgated along with a ton of fans for both teams.....the party next to us was serving these awesome Pork Wings. The guy worked for Sysco and he let us try a couple. I have to say they were truly awesome. Since then I have tried to find them anywhere. I was sent to a place in Raleigh but they said they had been a special and werent on their regular menu. Anyone know who has them either in the Carolina's or Maryland/

    Try a Yahoo or Google search. There's a meat company in Iowa that produces these things - I think it's called Heartland - and as I recall the site has a directory to distributors and retailers. I thought I had it bookmarked, because I've been looking all over for bone-in pork shanks, and that's what those are, but I either misplaced the bookmark or got rid of it. Happy hunting!

        Smithfield, Sysco and Farmland produce them but I haven't found a retail outlet for them. The Farmland link is for a PDF but even going to their full site I cannot get retail info.They are well worth the search so I'll keep on looking.

          I used to buy Sysco's Generation 7 potatoes from a local restaurant.

          Ask a local restaurant who does business with Sysco if they will order them for you.
